NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has responded to a scandal involving one of his aides and former Gov. Eliot Spitzer.
As WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported, the mayor-elect is sharing the media spotlight with his spokesperson, Lis Smith, who has been seen romantically with the former governor.
De Blasio said it isn’t a distraction to his transition to City Hall.
“I respect Lis as a professional but I also respect her right to privacy,” said de Blasio. “I think I’m getting my message out just fine.”
